Staff may communicate orally or in writing the necessary communications. CA Labour Code, Section 246 (f) (2) (k) A worker may determine the amount of paid sick leave, provided an employer is unable to set an appropriate minimum allowance of more than two hours to receive paid sick leave.

A worker rehired by the same employer within one year is entitled to reinstate all previous sick leave and may begin to be eligible for reinstatement on the first day of reinstatement.

The law contains a wide range of harsh penalties for offences, including but not limited to certain penalties of up to $4,000, in addition to compensation for paid sick days denied. The Commissioner of Labour or the Attorney General may, on behalf of an aggrieved worker, bring a civil action against anyone who breaks the law. Although workers begin to take sick leave on the day they start working with an employer, they can only begin to take accumulated sick leave after working at least ninety (90) days for the employer. CA Labour Code, Section 246 C) C) The total number of hours in the COVID-19 food sector to which a food worker is entitled in accordance with points A or B is in addition to the rate of paid absenteeism that can be made available to the worker in accordance with Section 246, but not to the total number of hours available to the worker in accordance with Executive Order N-51-20.
